MCAC invites applications for mechanical scholarships

OTTAWA—The Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) has announced it is now accepting applications for the 2022 Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series, which will award more than $20,000 to deserving students across Canada studying in the mechanical contracting and mechanical engineering fields.

The scholarships, named in honour of past-CEO Richard McKeagan, are supported by MCAC associate members and MCA partners from across Canada. Since its launch in 2006, the series has awarded more than $70,000 to post-secondary students, with some going on to work in Canada’s mechanical contracting sector.

The scholarship series has been broadened to include several new initiatives, including scholarships specifically for females in the mechanical field, apprentices and students dedicated to sustainability through design and engineering. This is in addition to the several scholarships available for financial assistance in the mechanical field of study.

Scholarships are available through the following MCAC associate members and MCA partners: Bradford White Canada, Equipco, Federated Insurance, Masco/Delta, MCA Hamilton-Niagara, Mitsubishi Electric, OS&B, Reliance Worldwide, Servco Canada, Taco Comfort Solutions, Uponor, Watts Water Technologies, the Women in Mechanical Construction initiative, and the broader associate membership of MCA Canada.

“Given the ongoing discussion around the skilled worker shortages across the country and our sector, the Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series is as important as ever,” said MCA Canada president Wayne Davidson in a statement. “Our association is dedicated to supporting the next generations of workers in our industry.”

The application deadline for this year’s scholarships is Aug. 12. More information can be found at  https://mcac.ca/our-programs/scholarships/.
